Alexandrine parakeet acting differently lately.
My boyfriend has owned an alexandrine parakeet for 24 years now. She usually hates everybody but him. She has chosen him as her mate and is always so sweet to him. A month ago she did the unthinkable and started to warm up to me. She had always been a one person bird so it is weird.
She since then laid a few eggs and she hasn't been the same since. She usually lays 3-4 eggs so when she laid 3 we knew it was normal. After the third egg she continued to be very nice to me. To my boyfriend though she is squeaking a lot and constantly having her break open while making a lot of weird noises. She never did that to me.
We don't know if she has moved on from him to me or if there is something wrong that she is trying to let him know since he's her mate. From other forums I have read I saw that her body language means that shes frightened. He's always so gentle to her so we do not know if it's true or not. We could really use some answers from an expert so that we don't have to see a vet for this behavioral change.
